The Pimlico plumber illustrates the conundrum of his illogical stance. He refuses to take his sign down. He stands on his ancient right that his gaff is his castle, not a right he extends to others.
Fine, say we conservatives/Deplorables – that’s free speech at work in this land, something we’re fighting for. His sign must remain up.
The fascist Remoaner though is supporting the removal of free speech and action, i.e., by definition, he is supporting the very prescriptive and proscriptive EUSSR policies which, if his sign did not suit them, would result in a takedown order and violence – the council stormtroopers sent in.
Not to mention the state stormtroopers Antifa and the snowflake “hit me with a flower” violence. There was a clip on Twitter of an old man of around 80 holding a sign, seemed a veteran of the war, maybe the Korean, and two twits were dancing around him, spitting invective – they were simply out of their brains, the girl then tried to tear his sign down but he was too quick.
That’s youth today and as you know, they’re into this safe spaces, no cultural appropriation, deplatforming people thing, the little twerps. And where is it generating from, all of this? From university staff. From failures of parents, including single mothers. A single mother, by definition, is failing her child.
Their constant trick
We saw it with Biden in the States. Any one of those could be up for sexual crimes, Ford turned out to be a slapper of the worst kind and a liar to boot and they don’t mind taking down anyone who opposes them by any means whatever.
The expression “dregs of society”. Look at the leftists and their behaviour – the nose-boner, tattooed, unhygienic, shrill, ugly left and then look, for example, at Sarah Sanders, Laura Ingraham, James Woods, JRM – where are their sleazy, Weiner type sex scandals? Bumping off opponents? Where?
And then Biden comes out and calls Deplorables the dregs of society. What, like Chelsea Handler being urinated on and loving it, like Kathy whatever with Trump’s head, Whoopi Goldberg – those sorts of dregs?
Tell me how Lindsey Graham’s performance over the past few days is the dregs? Tell me how John Redwood is the dregs? Tell me how Brett Kavanaugh’s wife and kids are the dregs?
It’s as clear as day, isn’t it? The left pauses in its nauseating, anti-democratic antics, glances across at people getting on with the rule of law and says hey, they have the moral high ground. I know, we’ll just accuse them of what we are.
When it gets to that stage, all reasoning has completely gone and there’s a huge vacuum of direct action on our part – direct action we are not taking. We have shown restraint.
Those of a harder line have been going on conservatives to stop pussyfooting around with these leftist dregs and act.
But conservatives are bumbling, be nice to people, disorganized, it’s frustrating. And the left gets away with murder and becomes emboldened.
Then you get pundits trying the definitions game – conservatives are no longer conservative, left means good things, all the rest of the bollox. No, sorry, the left does NOT mean good things, it means the dregs of society, the real dregs.
Good things means those abiding by classical liberalism but one can’t even use the word liberal these days because it’s been dirtied and brought down by the left who have labelled licentiousness liberalism and libertarianism.
So along comes someone saying left liberals and right liberals are the same. No they bleedin’ well aren’t, not in any way. Classical liberalism means simply freedom of thought, speech, action and worship unless and until it can be demonstrated that it is harmful. it applies to economics too.
A perfect example is Islam. It is harmful in its scripture, in its maniacal coercion, in its FGM etc. etc. It is a cuckoo in foreign nests. It should be expunged from the land and the mosques either razed or turned into community centres.
This seeming logical conundrum is addressed by the case of a murderer gunning people down and screaming, “Don’t oppress me, I have freedom of action, I have human rights.”
That is so clearly absurd but it is addressed by classical liberalism. Society sets up a framework – we have the Judaeo-Christian set of general laws – the Ten Commandments and the gospels, added to these are Magna Carta, the Constitution and so on and there is a set of precepts.
And for those stepping outside those, to the point of harming others or preventing them from following benign precepts, there must be a graded set of penalties, not subject to whim but set down on paper and followed, with no discretion by judges. The rule of law.
It is the ONLY system which is sustainable in a society and woe to any society which ditches that. It automatically protects women, children and other vulnerable members of society, it needs no minority rights demonstrations, though obviously it does not ban marches.
It is the ONLY system which combines order with freedom.
And there is nothing “far” right about that, it is centrist by definition.
